“…. Go thy way for this time; when I have a convenient season, I will call for thee.” Acts 24:25Text — Acts 24:22-25
Wikipedia defined procrastination as the action of unnecessarily and voluntarily delaying or postponing something despite knowing that there will be negative consequences for doing so. Procrastination is the gulf between a person and the achievement of a set goal. The story was told of a man who needed to borrow money to accomplish a very important task. He quickly made his way to a lending firm, where he met them having a party. He sat down with other guests and enjoyed the fun.
Few minutes later, another man rushed in and met everybody in the celebration mood and was asked to join them; he refused and said first thing first. He needed to see the loan officer, he was directed, and he got the money he needed, then joined the party. The other man then realized he actually came there for a loan too, he got up to meet the loan officer who told him that the last offer for that period had just been taken by the man who came while he was eating. What a regret!
Procrastination brings sorrow, pain, missed opportunities and lots more. Governor Felix had a great opportunity to be saved after Paul preached to him but he postponed the chance to a more convenient time which never came. Have you also been putting off your salvation for a later time? Repent of all your sins today and accept Jesus as your Lord and Saviour, tomorrow may be too late.
2 Corinthians 6:2
Prayer for today
